American Coot

Between the weather, my cold and being back at work, I haven't gotten out birding as much the last couple of weeks. So I've found myself looking back at some of the pictures I've taken in the past couple of months, but haven't had a chance to look through or hadn't gotten back to.
I took this image back on Dec 8 at RNWR. What I found interesting about this photo is the fact that the Coot is eating something. I assume it is some type of plant it dove for since Coot's are supposedly plant eaters. It looks a little like it is choking, but I think I would have noticed if it was having trouble when I took the picture.
